When it comes to taking that first drink of alcohol, most of us don't expect to get hooked. After all, consuming alcohol is legal and seen as a socially-acceptable way to unwind.
However, It's so easy to depend on that nightly cocktail, beer or glass of wine to relax at the end of the day, unwittingly heading into gray area drinking, a slippery slope toward alcoholism.
In this episode, Host Gail Ferguson Jones speaks with Meg Geisewite, author of "Intoxicating Lies. One Woman's Journey to Freedom from Gray Area Drinking."
She shares how she slipped from normalized drinking to full-blown dependency.
Meg offers a signed copy of her book and membership to her "Write Back to You" writing program on her website:
